PTA President's Note

This week, a few more students returned to Face to Face instruction.  Welcome back, it’s great to see you in person!  It seems like the first day to you, no doubt, but soon it will seem like you’ve been back at Schimelpfenig for weeks.


And, with more students in school, it’s a perfect time to remind everyone how important it is to wash your hands!  Today, October 15th, is Global Handwashing Day, which serves as a yearly reminder that handwashing with soap and water is one of the best steps we can take to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others.  The COVID-19 pandemic provides an important reminder that one of the most effective ways to stop the spread of germs and stay healthy is also one of the simplest — wash your hands!  


For Panther Parents:
